>> i am geraldo river rez. on t -- rivera on the phone with me is the attorney for casey anthony. thank you for calling in. let me ask straight out how is she doing and did you hear that angry crowd shouting killer, killer as casey walked free? >> i can't disclose any conversations she and i have had but i can tell you my experience when i walked out the door of course. i certainly had a large group of people yelling things. i couldn't make it out. we got in the car and left.
10:01 pm
(broken up talking) >> your phone is breaking up, jose. standstill or by the window there. let me ask you part of what i may have missed how is she doing? >> i don't have any information -- (breaking up). >> when you look at her how does she seem to be doing? >> i am not a therapist. i am a lawyer. those kinds of questions i think are best left up to the mental health professional. she is been through an incredible traumatic event in her life. a number of them in the last three years we are going to do
10:02 pm
our best to try to get in a position where she can help her self to try and move forward in life. >> does that mean therapy? does that mean a residential program? how is she going to get the help to heal from the trauma of losing her child by whatever means being in jail, solitary confinement for years facing the death penalty? >> we are looking at all possibilities we have to take into consideration for safety. all of these things are what we are looking at right now. we don't have all of the answers just yet. >> i am not going to ask you where she is but are there specific threats? are you afraid for her physical safety? >> here's what i am afraid of even more so we live in the united states of america and this young woman had her day in
10:03 pm
court a jury of 12 found her not guilty of murder and slaughter and aggravated assault. we need to start respecting jury verdicts and vision that is juries make and media personalities have no right in the life of any individual as to what they think may or may not have happened but what they believe. that is what is by far my greatest fear that they are acknowledging the sacrifice this jury made and hard work they labored over to render a just varied in this case which i believe they did they believe they did and that is really all. >> i agree that being vilified is obscene constitutionally speaking. i have to ask you about these rumors. is she or shaz hee left florida?
10:04 pm
is she or has she or will she change her names? is she getting plastic surgery is she becoming a blonde all of those things being reported? >> number one, all of those questions that i would have knowledge of only through the attorney client relationship. and you know, the fact is here casey has been acquitted and shes released from jail and she deserves every right to live the life. it is unfortunate these questions have conversation rumor have to come up. that is really just all that really does. >> i understand all that and agree with that.
10:05 pm
what's making everybody crazy is the feeling that she is going to cash in now make millions off this terrible tragedy. what's your response to that? >> i can respond to the -- she has certain rights and individual in this country and we will labor hard to make sure that she has the ability to say what she is going to do no one knows. i heard on your network there's a deal for a million dollars. that is not so. i was going to meet with the individual and you hear whatever offer he wanted to make and that was the only agreement i ever made with him was to sit down and listen to what they were offering but that's not the case. i am not meeting with them.
10:06 pm
i am now going to change my mind. this is not the way we want to handle casey's affairs from this point on in a dignified manner and parading offers and making media appearances about prospective interviews and things like that that is not something we want to be a part of. setting the record straight on that. >> what relationship will you and casey have will you continue to be her attorney? >> i am her attorney. the contactive had with her the last three years is -- >> you have a message for him or more to the point casey's parents or her brother lee? >> i have spoken with mark.
10:07 pm
any communications i have with mark i have his number. he can do it on television. >> when will we be hearing from casey's own mouth her side of the story? >> i don't -- as far as those, i really don't know. right now we are going to -- we want to make sure she starts living her life. if she decides she wants to speak publicly about it she will make that decision. someone doesn't have -- no one has the right for another individual to go out on television right now we were just moving forward and trying to start finally put the pieces back together. >> listen counselor, whatever we
10:08 pm

10:12 pm
facial expression. she was wearing a bright pink shirt with a polo logo on it. her hair was in a tight bunn. two srt officers were behind her with automatic weapons strapped on him. >> i don't know that anything is beyond repair but the odds are strong. she may have a relationship at some point. i think with the pair rentz that's pretty well burned. >> jose baez co council in the dramatic murder case. casey anthony accused of killing her baby. casey acquitted with the stunni stunning verdict. jose baez joins me now.
10:13 pm
mark thanks for coming on. did you and jose speak? is that accurate? what were those conversations to the extent you can tell me? oo the extent is we know that casey is safe and everything else right now we are waiting to see what happened. >> what about casey said about the parents and former accused child murderer now having no relationship? is that the way you see it or is that the way they see it more importantly? >> until they hear directly from casey right now what mr. baez may say is potentially their own opinion. other than that my clients are speaking with casey. >> does that mean that they -- what's the proper expression they forgive her or want to have a relationship with her? her dad's testimony seemed to be very, very negative and pro prosecution the mother obviously
10:14 pm
as we all know tried her best it seems to testify on her behalf. >> it is interesting you put it that way. both testified truthfully obviously mr. anthony wasn't the target of the defense. find whatever he said appeared to be pro prosecution. as far as what they want or what they think at some point they will give their thoughts and feelings. we want to do make sure they were safe and we had the assurances given to us. >> what about an assurance your client cindy caylee marie's grandma will be charged or not charged with perjury regarding her testimony about the search for chloroform. >> the state attorney's office after they said they were having discussions with the state
10:15 pm
attorney regarding perjury they were not going to charge cindy. at this point i don't think it will be too much of a concern. >> you got into hot water for saying your clients believe casey is guilty. you want to give us a short version of the claim. >> it was never that they said she was not guilty. >> that she was guilty. >> or that she was guilty not guilty or anything. those words actually never left my mouth. the term was that she is not innocent was used and it was in context with an entire conversation. it was more directed towards the defense's use of their opening statement when mr. baez said that mr. anthony had molested casey. we were saying george never
10:16 pm
supported that theory. >> you said they believed her not to be -- do they still believe her to be not innocent? >> you have to look at the context of everything that has done in the trial. doesn't matteder what they believe at this point. everybody has opinions. t whenever you were right as they identified correctly the you united states offers rights. they gave the rights to casey they found her not guilty. >> what was the headline? >> he said acquitted he did not say innocent. what we are hearing again is -- >> i am talking about jose baez. >> jose baez said she was acquitted. acquittal does not mean innocent. jose baez does not follow that trap. >> i quitted means he could right a book. >> she could right a book but
10:17 pm
acquitted doesn't mean she is innocent. >> a book deal, a life in hiding, motherhood again. whakdz the future hold for casey anthony? what could we ever -- could we ever for give her? ever for give her? the little ever for give her? the little luck? i don't trade on luck. i trade on fundamentals. analysis. information. i trade on tradearchitect. this is web-based trading, re-visualized. streaming, real-time quotes. earnings analysis. probability analysis.

to sue me the claim is absurd in and itself. i can't believe the judge hasn't dropped this case already. >> oh god. >> what stacy? >> wrong, wrong, wrong. i don't agree with him at all. >> this is not just onnon smith. this is zonita gonzalez fernandez. this woman suffered such loss since this incident. she got evicted can't get a job she has suffering and damages. this isn't something i mentioned something. it is a full statement made she is been convicted of those false statements they were published not only the third party to millions of parties. her lawsuit is good. they paid back, period the end. >> let the public let her employer say i made a mistake. she had nothing to do with the lawsuit.
10:48 pm
just because they matched the purse with what the allegation was doesn't give rise to a lawsuit. >> looks like zani the nanny is trying to gran dies herself to get the attention. with tim miller it's a completely different story. the before this whole casey anthony thing happened he was very clear. >> if i am the plaintiff -- if i am the plaintiff lawyer in the tim miller case i put him on the stand first i am getting much more than one red cent. i am getting the $100,000 he's a righteous man with a righteous cause he has no ax to grind. he's just trying to do the right thing for all of the families. with every cent he makes is going to search for kids. >> go ahead. >> i was just going to ask i know that you talk to jose you are asking him questions i think tim miller makes a good point.
